Culture Cast – Peer-to-Peer Leadership Works Best in Today’s Organizations

Personal leadership Podcast

In season 3, episode 7, Lorne and Lynette discuss moving away from command and control in leadership to make an even bigger, more effective impact with a peer-to-peer system.

Organizations are simply moving too fast for traditional leadership systems to be as efficient and effective as they need to be. Both leaders and team members should be comfortable enough to let go and adopt peer-to-peer models that work.

Team members are hired to be free-thinkers and creators, and it’s their responsibility to look for opportunities to contribute to solving big issues at work, not just doing assigned transactions. Abandon the “what are they going to do about it?” and “that’s not my department” attitude.

When team members’ ideas can get out and be implemented, they can be put into the community so it becomes a bigger and better idea, which is more gratifying for both the individual and the organization as a whole.

Culture Cast – Have the Courage to Turn Chance Encounters into Powerful Moments

In season 3, episode 6, Lorne and Lynette discuss having the courage to turn chance encounters into powerful moments, even when we might second guess ourselves and let insecurities or shyness make us skip the opportunity.

Lorne tells the story of when he recently ran into Hockey Night in Canada’s Ron MacLean at an airport Starbucks, and refers to the Japanese saying, “ichigo ichie,” which translates to “one time, one meeting.” Although, Lorne thinks it’s “one encounter, one chance.” 

Still, the essence is the same. Try not to skip on chance encounters and powerful moments.
